To our referring veterinarians, my commitment is to ensure your severely ill patients are treated in a critical care environment and that you remain a part of the patient care team as we try to alleviate the time of crisis.
To pet owners, my commitment is to provide critical care information and recommendations as we work together to choose a treatment plan that best fits with your family’s goals of care. I am committed to patient care and will ensure your pet feels at home throughout their time in our ICU.

Her research was centered on high-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy in respiratory failure and post-anesthesia brachycephalic dog recoveries. She is dedicated to creating an intensive care unit that focuses on critical care for severely ill patients and that fosters a team-oriented, collaborative approach to medicine. She is responsible for overseeing care and stability of all patients in the ICU, and also accepts referrals for critically ill and injured patients.

Dr. Jagodich joined the Boundary Bay Veterinary Specialty Hospital family in October 2018, moving to BC from Guelph, Ontario. She thoroughly enjoys hiking, backcountry camping, climbing, yoga, health and wellness, and hopes to place an emphasis on employee well-being while building her service. She moved to BC with her two perfect cats, Seraphina & Sapphire. One of which is often a trouble maker.
